The top hurdle with the communities I am helping is getting them to believe the sheer financial impact following Covid19.
Just enough time has passed that many have forgotten how bad the Great Recession was. Massive cuts in Federal & State aid to local communities left many unprepared to provide basic services.
Bad decisions are made when leaders panic.
Create your plans with 10% to 50% cuts in revenue. Vision how you can still provide essential services with less staff. Governments at all levels are service businesses ergo highest cost are employees.
Disaster planning is not just about a tornado ripping up a town but is the essential key to success in destructive economic times.
